FOREST FIRE PREVENTION IS EVERYBODY'S 

BUSINESS 



Carelessness is responsible for 97 percent of all our 
forest fires. This is a serious indictment of our interest 
in our own welfare and that of our neighbors. In too 
many instances this carelessness results in the destruc- 
tion, not of the careless one's own property, but of 
someone not even known to him. 

Thoughtlessly thrown lighted cigars, cigarettes and 
matches from moving vehicles by hikers, hunters and 
fishermen; the careless burning of debris during haz- 
ardous periods, high winds or in dangerous locations; 
improperly extinguished camp or cook fires — all add 
up to the CARELESSNESS that means serious loss of 
property, disruption of industry and farm work and 
unnecessary expenditure of town and state funds. 

It points to the need of eliminating CARELESSNESS 
so far as it concerns fire from our daily life. The rules 
are simple — your cooperation is earnestly solicited. 

1. Be careful with fire in or near woodlands. 

2. Be sure that all lighted material — cigars, ciga- 
rettes and matches — is completely out before 
discarding it. Use ash trays in autos. 

3. Secure the required written permission to burn 
from your local forest fire warden when the 
ground is not completely covered with snow. 

4. Insist that others be careful and comply with 
burning requirements. 

5. Call the warden promptly when fire is detected 
and aid him to extinguish it. 



46 



Let's remember that FOREST FIRE PREVEN- 
TION is EVERYBODY'S BUSINESS and our MOST 
IMPORTANT undertaking!

There were 149 new and 301 repeat cases that were 
admitted to the nursing; service and 70 new and 167 re- 
peat cases under health service. 

Twenty-nine trips were made transporting patients 
to clinics, hospitals and specialists. 

Toxoid Clinics in cooperation with the State Board 
of Health were held in March, April, May, June, Oc- 
tober, November, and December. Dr. Kathleen Robin- 
son was the attending physician for the spring clinics 
and Dr. Frank Robinson for the fall clinics with Mrs. 
Joanna Carter, R.N., State Preschool Nurse, assisting. 
A total of 201 received the triple toxoid for diphtheria, 
whooping cough and tetanus. This is given in three 
graduated doses, a month between treatments. 

The nurse procured the necessary workers for the 
Bloodmobile and also assisted when it came to Tilton 
in February and September. 



54 



Mrs. Caroline Dorman, R.N. substituted for the Dis- 
trict Nurse while she had her vacation. 

The school nurse, Miss Harriet Stone and the Dis- 
trict Nurse wrapped and distributed a large number of 
gifts for appreciative youngsters of the two towns at 
Christmas. These gifts were given through the gener- 
osity of the Rotary Club, Business and Professional 
Women's Club, Johns Manville, teachers of both 
schools and many individuals. The Catholic Daughters 
gave generous baskets of fruit and candy and cookies 
to two large families. 

Many dinners were given by the American Legion, 
Odd Fellows, Elks, and Salvation Army. 

I wish to take this opportunity to sincerely thank 
the doctors, the District Nursing Board, the selectmen 
of Tilton and Northfield and the citizens of both towns 
for the cooperation, kindness and courtesy shown to 
me at all times during my work as District Nurse. It 
has been very much appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALICE FRENCH, R.N.

To the Inhabitants of Tilton and Northfield: 

In closing the records of the Tilton-Northfield Fire 
District your management takes pleasure in presenting 
its report for 1954, which includes a detailed State- 
ment of Expenditures, Notes Payable, Insurance and 
Estimated Expenses for the year 1955. 

The two outstanding events of the year were the 
total destruction of the Craig Homestead on School 
Street and the Firemen's Convention in September. 

The Craig home was struck by lightning during an 
electrical storm and completely destroyed. The cattle 
and some equipment were saved, but the buildings and 
contents were a total loss. Once again an old landmark 
has been removed from a list that is fast diminishing 
throughout the country-side. 

The State Firemen's Convention was rained out by 
Hurricane Edna, which somewhat held up many dem- 
onstrations by exhibitors of fire fighting equipment. 
This was supplemented with various panel group 
meetings that proved very beneficial and instructive. 

Operating expense showed a small increase over the 
previous year. The major items being for new equip- 
ment and replacements. This is an era when cost of 
equipment and replacements are constantly growing 
and your management realizes that in order to main- 
tain an efficient Fire Department it is essential that we 
procure and provide the members of our department 
with the necessary equipment, not only for their own 
protection and safety, but also for the protection of our 
Taxpayers who so generously provide the necessary 
funds to maintain our Fire Department. 

The management appreciate the fine active interest 
the Citizens of Tilton and Northfield have taken in the 
welfare of our Fire Department, and we realize that 



58 



it is through your cooperation and interest that we 
have achieved our present position in having one of 
the finest equipped departments within the State. 

As we start the new year we are confident that all 
you citizens and members of the Fire Department will 
approach the challenge and opportunity to serve your 
Fire Department with the same loyalty, and spirit of 
teamwork, that has characterized your performance 
in the past. 

We are grateful to you all for your interest in our 
Department and we wish to assure you that the duties 
entrusted to us as Firewards will continue to receive 
our careful attention.

REPORT OF THE 
TILTON-NORTHFIELD SCHOOL BOARD 



We have carefully prepared the proposed budget 
for the 1955-56 school year, with two purposes in mind, 
— the first, to make certain that all the children at- 
tending our schools are furnished the resources for a 
good education, and the second, to remove any expendi- 
tures that are not necessary at this time. We do not 
wish to increase the tax rate beyond the ability of our 
citizens, and the life blood of our community, business 
and industry. 

The School Board will probably officially accept the 
new school building from the contractor by the annual 
district meeting. We shall give a report showing the 
exact receipts and expenditures of the $135,000 bond 
issue. 

Our proposed budget shows an increase of approxi- 
mately $20,000. Our increased pupil enrollments re- 
quire the addition of two teachers. We have also pro- 
posed a new salary schedule in accordance with rising 
costs in teachers' salaries all over the nation. We are 
also proposing the installing of an oil burner at the 
Union Grammar School in order to prepare later for 
using coal storage space for other purposes. It was 
necessary to increase the item for water, light, and 
janitor supplies to meet the actual costs of these serv- 
ices. 

We again wish to express our deep appreciation for 
the excellent services of the members of the Building 
Committee, Mr. Gilman Lowery, Mr. Rudolph Prosser, 
Mr. Brackett Hill, and Mr. Burt Smith for their work 
in making this new building possible, and their sacri- 



74 

fice of time in the many meetings required to study 
finances, plans, specifications, and possibilities. 

We wish to thank the Parent-Teacher Association for 
its cooperation with the school board, teachers and 
staff. Their support of the Scholarship Fund and the 
Room Mothers have contributed to a successful year. 

We thank the Rotary Club, the American Legion, 
the Chamber of Commerce, the Golden Rule Farm, the 
Peabody Chapter, Order of the Eastern Star, and the 
many individuals who have contributed funds and time 
to the grading and development of a baseball field at 
the Tilton-Northfield High School. It is expected that 
the Committee in charge of the field will complete the 
work in the spring of 1955. 

We wish to thank the Lions Club for its work at the 
Union School playgrounds and its contributions to the 
recreational welfare of the youngsters. 

We thank the Golden Rule Farm for the $1,730.00 
received for the equalization of tuition for out-of-state 
pupils during the past school year. This fund has been 
held in reserve as a special equipment fund. 

We wish to thank all organizations and individuals 
who have contributed in any way during the past year 
for scholarship funds, donations, gifts, and prizes for 
children of the Tilton-Northfield schools. 

We appreciate the many suggestions received during 
the year by citizens for the improvement of the schools. 
We are very receptive to suggestions from our citizens 
at any time. We know that we are chosen as repre- 
sentatives of the people to carry out your wishes. We 
appreciate the support we have received from the 
voters. 

We suggest that you carefully read the report of the 
Superintendent and all of the information presented. 



75 

We thank everyone who has contributed in any 
way to better schools by suggestions, assistance and 
encouragement. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALEXANDER G. MacGREGOR

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the Members of the School Board: 

New Grade School 

The new elementary school opened in September, 
1954, with complete new equipment for pupils and 
teachers and a new educational horizon for Tilton- 
Northfield children. 

The enrollment for the first three grades was un- 
usually large. This was partially caused by the inability 
of parochial schools in neighboring cities to accept 
additional pupils from Tilton. The additional teacher 
provided in the budget aided the situation. 

This new landmark removed two grades from Union 
School corridors, two grades from the High School, 
two grades from the auditorium of the Union School, 
and one grade from the old Scout House. The new 
central kitchen has been used for the preparation of 
meals for the three schools. 

The high school projected enrollments will show 
some decrease by pupils leaving school although the 
new state law requiring attendance until sixteen will 
reduce the drop outs. This census predicts that there 
will be 100 more pupils in our schools in September 
1956 than in September, 1954. It also predicts that 
there will be 150 more pupils in September, 1958 than 
in September, 1954. 

The census shows that approximately sixty more 
pupils entered the first grade in September, 1954 than 
will be graduated from the high school in June, 1955. 
It also shows that there will be sixty more pupils en- 
tering the first grade in September, 1955 than will

graduate in June, 1956. It also shows that in a few 
years the number entering the first grade will approxi- 
mately equal the number of graduates. 

It is evident that Tilton-Northfield will need space 
for one hundred more pupils in September, 1956 than 
the enrollment of September, 1954 and will need space 
for one hundred fifty pupils in September, 1958 than 
it had in September, 1954. 

Real study is required during the next year for the 
most economical and educational solution of the prob- 
lem of providing classrooms for these additional pupils. 

Teaching Staff 

The proposed budget for 1955-56 provides for two 



93 



additional teachers to meet increased enrollment. A 
study of the census shows that it will be necessary to 
add one teacher in 1956 and two teachers in 1957. This 
teaching staff will apparently be -sufficient, barring in- 
dustrial development in this vicinity which would 
naturally increase pupil enrollment. 

School Supplies 

Tilton-Northfield continued to secure bids for all 
school supplies with the other four towns of Supervisory 
Union No. 59, resulting in extensive reductions in 
price. Bids were also secured for all other items it is 
possible to purchase under bid. 

Finances 

The school district ended the 1953-54 school year 
with all bills paid and some fuel supplies on hand to 
start the new year. 

Testing Program 

The Union School used the same testing program 
conducted by the University of New Hampshire for 
two years so that results are available for all pupils 
over that period. The high school has followed the 
system of mid-vear and final examinations to give 
pupils who are entering college or the Armed Services 
necessary experience for examinations. 

Special Achievements by the Tilton-Northfield 
School Board 

The following represent special actions by the Tilton- 
Northfield School Board that represent real achieve- 
ment and progress in education: 

1. The securing of excellent experienced and be- 
ginning teachers to fill all vacancies in a period of 
teacher shortage. 



94 

2. The participation of grade two children in Tilton- 
Northfield in the nationwide polio vaccine clinic under 
the direction of Dr. Archie Grevior, Drs. Bernard and 
Kathleen Robinson and Miss Harriet Stone, Super- 
visory Union nurse. 

3. The retirement and sale of the old station wagon 
formerly used for school transportation and auto driv- 
ing instruction. 

4. The sale of the old Scout House formerly used 
for school facilities. 

5. The annual pre-school registration under the 
direction of Miss Harriet Stone with the assistance of 
many parents. 

6. The building of a driveway for the new school. 

7. The grading and surfacing of the lawn for the 
new school and the restoration of the lawn for the 
Union Grammar School. 

8. The removal of the high school cafeteria from 
the Home Economics Department of the high school. 

9. The establishment of a new insurance system for 
all school buildings and property through the cooper- 
ation of the local insurance agents. The new general 
policy gives more protection at lower cost with two 
general policies in existance, one for fire and extended 
coverage and the other for liability. Small policies are 
maintained for auto driving and treasurer's bond. 

10. The placing of $1,730.00 received as equaliza- 
tion tuition from the Golden Rule Farm for out of 
state pupils to a special equipment fund reserved for 
future use. 

11. Progress through the cooperation of many or- 
ganizations on the athletic field development. 

12. The saving of approximately $500 per year on 
subsidiary transportation by a three year bid.

The School Board has held regular monthly meet- 
ings and many special meetings while the new school 
building was under construction. The members of the 
board have given many extra hours from their own per- 
sonal responsibilities to study the problems of the 
school district. All proposed school policies have been 
debated thoroughly before action was taken to put 
policies into operation. 



100 



I wish to express my appreciation to the school 
board, principals, teachers, office workers, custodians, 
bus operators, and cafeteria workers for their excel- 
lent cooperation during the past year. The School 
Board, Building Committee, and all the citizens of 
Tilton-Northfield are now enjoying the satisfaction of 
constructing a new school that has relieved tremendous 
educational problems and given the children an ex- 
cellent building for modern education. 

Cordially yours, 

GORDON L. FOX, 

Supt. of Schools
